More than half of British adults suffer from muscle, bone or joint pain. Although there is no diet cure for arthritis and joint pain, adding these suggested foods to your balanced diet may help ease your symptoms:
Fruit contains antioxidants, which help to reduce inflammation, consequently helping with joint pain. Best known fruits for managing joint pain include: blueberries, strawberries, cherries, apples and rhubarb.
Some love it, some hate it but cauliflower contains inflammatory nutrients such as Omega 3 fatty acids, selenium and vitamin K which helps to prevent inflammation and relieve joint pain.
Throughout history, ginger has been a valued medicinal plant.
Ginger is known for suppressing leukotrienes (inflammatory molecules) and switch off certain inflammatory genes, potentially making it more effective than conventional pain relievers at treating rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammation of the joints.
Olive and Avocado Oil
Studies have shown that 3 ½ tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil equates to 200 mg of ibuprofen. Avocado oil can also eliminate joint pain naturally,
as it contains vitamin-E and good fats that protect cells from oxidation which can lead to joint pain.
Turmeric is loaded with antioxidants, which makes it a perfect remedy for joint pain, as proven by many studies. It is especially efficient in relieving morning stiffness and joint swelling. 1,200
mg of turmeric has the same effect as 300 ml of phenylbutazone, when it comes to treating arthritis.
